Lindy Hop Contest! says
After the our last Jack n Jill contest people were asking for a couples contest. We thought that was an excellent idea so we went to work getting things together and we have a great night for you planned for you. Please note that because of the contest we’ll be extending dancing till at least 12:30am.

The West End Stompers will take the stage to provide the music for the night including the finals of the contest. Over the past couple of years these guys have become one of our favorite bands with their expert knowledge of Swing music and and Hot Jazz. These local musicians are simply awesome!

The Contest:
You’ll enter the contest with a partner. Air steps, drops, lifts, dips, are allowed. However, awesome dancing is what will win this contest. Two women or men dancing together is fine by us. Sign ups for the contest will start at 8:30pm at the snack bar. The prelims will take place during the first band break. Each heat will dance to three songs each with a different tempo in an “all-skate” format. That means all couples for the heat will dance on the floor at the same time.

The West End Stompers will play the finals. There will be a short warmup song and then a Jam style song where each couple will get 8 eight counts twice through.

Judges will be looking at how awesome your dancing is. Great dancing will beat flash and trash every time. This is not to say that throwing in some well timed flash won’t win you some points with the judges. Lindy Hop has a long history of awesome flash combined with beautiful technique.
